At the height of the pandemic, a few colleagues and I felt that issues within Communities of Color were not being addressed. So, I independently convened Commissioners and senior leaders within the administration to join a conference call to discuss COVID -19 and propose solutions. Fifteen people were invited, my invitation was circulated to others- over 75 people joined. The Mayor discovered we were meeting independently and formed the Race and Equity Taskforce. A former colleague and friend texted me last night to thank me and inform me that the Taskforce is a permanent body. I rarely talk about my work. But organizing these calls is one of my proudest moments. 🙏🏽
